Panama City, Florida has all the makings of a dream destination with its blue skies, blue waters and its picturesque waterways. But there is one inconvenient thing Panama City homeowners have to contend with – the harsh summer storms and sometimes even hurricanes.
These are vital factors to think about when considering which roofing materials to install in your Panama City home. Homeowners must take into account the sun factor, as well these extreme storm conditions. There is a number of roofing materials that can adequately respond to these concerns, which Citadel Roofing is well-versed in. Below we have the roofing materials for popular Panama City home styles.
Asphalt shingle roofing has grown in popularity because of its ability to resist and protect against all kinds of extreme weather conditions. Asphalt’s waterproofing capabilities are unmatched and in addition, it is also great at reflecting solar heat. What’s more, asphalt shingles come at a fraction of the cost of more premium options, though you will likely need to replace in about 20-30 years or so. Regular and proper maintenance is key to avoiding this.
Clay or concrete
If you want a roof that’ll last you a lifetime, then clay or concrete tiles are the way to go. Lasting in excess of 100 years, clay and concrete can only afford this long lifespan thanks to its durability, resistance to fire, extreme heat, wind and heavy rain, making it a great choice for Panama City home styles. The look and finish of a tiled roof really is the pinnacle, and it definitely is one of the more superior roofing options in terms of aesthetics. Of course, it does come with a hefty price tag, but is well worth the upfront investment.
Another roofing material option that performs superbly is metal. It presents a great combination of benefits in that it is durable, strong, lightweight and relatively cost-effective. Homeowners love the fact that metal can be imagined in a variety of ways, with some able to mimic the look of more premium roofing materials. Its light weight also means there is less strain on the home’s structure as opposed to the heavy weight of slate or clay for example.
